Every outfit I own has either coffee stains, baby food or pet hair on it, but I’ll take that over Spanx and heels any day. After spending my twenties working in TV news, I’m spending my thirties in sweatpants writing about Instagram famous dogs (among other things).

I’ve done a lot of work for Catster, Dogster and Lucky Puppy, contributing original reporting, product reviews, celebrity interviews and personal essays.  I write a humour column, Bark Out Loud, for Dogster’s print magazine. My work has also appeared on Sniff & Barkens, the Petco Community blog and The Dodo. I make a lot of cat GIFs.

My fur family includes two cats and two dogs: Ghost Cat, Specter, Marshmallow and GhostBuster. They are collectively known as @ghostpets on Instagram.

My human baby doesn’t have an Insta but he does have a voracious appetite and good taste in TV. He likes Doctor Who and Battlestar Galactica, just like his mom.
